    Ok, I am home. Here are pics of my material. I am really thrilled with all of it...almost. When I was looking at the $1 material, I passed some decent quality material that was Elvis Presley themed...just not that into Presley. I was excited to find Army themed material with dog tags, soldiers stripes etc on it in a color that I could pair with cammo colors for my grand son...didn't really care about the print as I would be cutting it in strips, but was excited about the colors....now as I am taking pics, I see it is pic/representations of Elvis's dog tags, draft registration card with his signature...all nice, but just not into Elvis...DRAT! Hmmmm wonder if it would work for a kaleidoscope quilt or it would probably make a really unique pocketbook?
    Not bad for a days work, huh?

    Over view of Elvis material Dog tags seem to stand out.

    That would be great! I know that the one nearest me lost their fabric, and had hardly any yarn...last time i was in there seemed to be more yarn, but the sewing machines, which had stayed when the fabric left, are now gone.

    Wal Mart in my home town did away with their fabric too. I have to go to a quilt shop nearby which is a nice store but a little pricey. I hardly go to Wal Mart anymore. :thumbdown:

    Ok, so I know what I'm looking for when I get there... do they have it labeled a special way to know that it is $5 a bolt price? I'm trying to figure out where it would be in mine. Were they with all the per yard clearance fabric?

    Well, I guess I will wonder through the store looking if their not even going to keep it in the same department. Were they marked special?

    The doggie fabric is the $1 FQ my hubby picked out. The one WM had them for that price, the other didn't. Go figure...

    The one store had many bolts of the jungle stuff, the other only had one which was hidden between other bolts. Hope you find some.

    We still have fabric but it all precuts. They have fat quarters for $1.00, jelly rolls and layercakes for $12.96 abd 2 yard packages for $5,00.
